A Keepsake Table runner

Still showing off some of the Christmas goodies I made for family.  I made this table runner for my parents.  In my last post I mentioned that my Mom recently had her Kitchen & part of the dining area re-done so I was focused on making some things for these rooms.  My Mom has a very pretty dining table, it's a nice darker wood and BIG... I think the soft colors of this runner will be perfect layed out across the top :)  I used Paris Flea Market by 3 Sisters for Moda fabric.
Earlier in the year I had asked my parents for a tracing of their hands (for a project for me), so I took those tracing and also took tracings of my house-holds hands.

I used a Tonal White pattern for the handprints and appliqued them to the top.  Then I had everyone sign their "hand" with a Black Copic Multiliner.

I attached buttons where the lattice overlaps.  A handful of years ago my Gramma gave me a large tin with LOTS of buttons in it :) Some were from her and some were from my Great-Gramma... clearly 3 buttons from this tin were just the perfect touch to finish this off.
